Welcome to CFS Facts!
Dispelling the myths and providing the facts!
There are many myths about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. This is where you can come for the facts.
CFS is a debilitating illness involving symptoms and abnormalities of the immune system,
circulatory system, central nervous system, and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. - Dr. Katrina Berne
Historically, illnesses are attributed to temperament when science lacks, or refuses to seek, answers.- B.F. Synhorst, M.S.W.
Avoid the labels "somatizer", "hypochondriac", "neurotic" and "crock". All symptoms have
origins and should be taken seriously.- Dr. Katrina Berne
In 100% of disabled CFS patients, Dr. A. Martin Lerner documented T-wave abnormalities and suggests that the Holter results should be part of the diagnostic criteria.
WHAT CFS IS NOT:
CFSFacts is creating one of the most extensive, complete and comprehensive website for CFS information on the internet!
We suggest you join our Yahoogroup and Forum, and that you register as a user on our Wiki which is growing daily with articles, links, information, personal stories and more.
If you want to contribute to our efforts, please email us at:
We aim to have all submissions added to the website within 14 working days!
Check out our web host's rates for hosting of websites run by people who have CFS-related disabilities. It's well worth the cost!
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients must go to Congress with advocacy needs that have not been met by the CDC or NIH. The link below will lead you to a proposed Request for Congressional Action for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
We are presenting it for anyone who wants to use it. This action is for the May 12 Awareness Day, but also to carry out through the year 2006.
We are requesting you to send it to your Congressional Representative and Senators. We think that Congressional intervention is necessary because of the sad state of affairs in the areas of research, medical treatment, and public awareness of the severity of this disease.
Below are the links to the letter you can send to your Congressional Representative or Senator. It is available in three formats - Word Document (Win97/Win2003), PDF Format (latest version) or as a standard html page (for you to link to from your own website!).
If you require the letter in a format not listed above, please contact the web mistress at WebDiva@cfsfacts.org.
